Canada 150 Fireworks!

Canada 150 Fireworks!

Location: Inner Harbour - Legislature Lawn

Date and Time: July 1st, 8:00 - 10:30 pm

Come and celebrate Canada's 150th with a free fireworks show!

As part of many free Canada 150 events, there are 11 days (starting June 21 st) of FREE events happening in Victoria’s Inner Harbour.  While we would love to attend them all – and, indeed, encourage you to do so – the GSS has decided that one is a feasible goal and that one will be the annual fireworks display! 

I finally have an update about what is actually happening! We will be meeting on the legislature lawn around 8:30pm. (The fireworks do not start until 10:15pm, but it is always packed so we encourage people to be early as it may be difficult to find space.) While we do intend to bring a couple blankets, people are strongly encouraged to bring their own (or lawn chairs - if that is your jam) as we cannot ensure that we will have enough.
Super family friendly event!
